1. By default, the pistol is not loaded - the default position of pistol parts: view and cross-section.

Specifics:

- The locking member of the locking mechanism (double-arm pivot lever) body is in the default (rear) position;

- The front part of the locking mechanism (double-arm pivot lever) body together with the locking roller are somewhat lowered to ensure the problem-free manual pulling of the breech at pistol loading;

- In this position, the double-arm pivot lever (swing) is held by the front part of the trigger, which somewhat lifts the rear part of the swing because the retracting spring of the trigger is more rigid than the retracting spring of the swing.

2. The position of pistol parts at manual pulling of the breech at pistol loading - the skirt deflects the locking roller downwards together with the front part of the swing: cross-section.

Specifics :

- The skirt moves backwards and the locking roller together with the front part of the swing is freely deflected downwards;

- When the skirt passes above the swing axis, it deflects the rear part of the swing downwards and reaches the rear damping roller, leaning against it but not pushing it down (which would require a considerable force). This backward movement of breech is enough for lifting the upper cartridge in the magazine to be consequently introduced into the gun chamber.

3. Position of pistol parts at shooting: cross-section

Specifics:

- The pulled trigger has pushed the lower part of the swing locking member into the front position;

- The swing is locked; its rear part cannot go up and the front part cannot go down;

- The skirt leans against the locking roller and cannot start its backward movement before the bullet shoots from the barrel channel and the pressure of powder gases in the barrel decreases;

When the firing takes place and the bullet is shot from the barrel channel, the skirt will push the locking roller down while compressing the locking spring: cross-section

Specifics:

- The trigger is pulled on and maintains the lower part of the swing locking member in the front position;

- The swing is locked and cannot rotate around its own axis;

- The skirt is pushing the locking roller down while compressing the locking spring.

5. Position of pistol parts after firing and after the breech has reached the rear extreme position: cross-section

Specifics:

- The trigger is pulled on and maintains the lower part of the locking member in the front position;

- The swing is locked and cannot rotate around its own axis;

- When the skirt nears the rear extreme position, it pushes the damping roller down, slowing down its further movement backwards to detachable stops;

- The lower parts of the two detachable stops prevent deflection of the rear part of the swing downwards together with the damping roller;

- When the skirt reaches the rear extreme position, it will lean against the upper parts of the two detachable stops. 

6. Position before the gun discharge - the "discharge" safety catch is switched on:

Specifics :

- Tags of the "discharge" safety catch are turned up and clearly visible by eye;

- The safety catch axis is turned by 90 degrees and prevents the striker in reaching the front extreme position and puncturing the cap of the cartridge if it is in the gun chamber;

- In this state, the pistol can be safely discharged after shooting or before disassembly even in the case that a cartridge was left by accident in the gun chamber or the magazine with cartridges in the pistol grip;

- The breech is pulled on manually to empty the cartridge from the gun chamber, and the cock is safely released from the position of preparedness for shooting;

- Then, the pistol can be inspected, the magazine can be removed from the gun grip, if it was not removed already prior to discharging, and the breech is manually pulled on again in order to empty another cartridge from the gun chamber;

- The pistol disassembly can be commenced, if necessary, and a visual check can be made that the magazine has not been pulled out from the pistol grip; after the removal of the skirt, no accidental discharge can occur.

7. Incomplete pistol disassembly: 

Specifics:

- The magazine is pulled out from the pistol grip;

- The front part of the trigger guard is lowered (for this, a small force of two trigger guard fixing springs has to be overcome);

- From both sides, the lateral protective lamellas are removed together with the rear breech stops;

- The skirt is manually pushed backwards, further than to the rear extreme position after shooting;

- The rear damping roller is deflected downwards together with the rear part of the swing, which is no more prevented by the rear parts of the removed detachable stops;

- The rear part of the skirt is elevated so that it can be pulled out of the guide;

- The skirt is removed from the frame;

- The return spring of the skirt and its guide are separated.
